Very sunny and nice out. All the natives say it normally rains every day. We headed to the park headquarters and hitched a ride. The driver only thought I was the one that wanted a ride but we all managed to squeeze into the back seat of the pickup truck. He wouldn’t let us ride in the back due to RCMP ticket possibilities. Park orientations are at 9am every day. We arrived at 1pm, and Mook Wesley was gone for the day so went to the Museum next door. They did the six totem talk and we went through the museum. Afterwards Judy and I headed to Skidegate for a two kilometer walk and saw the small community. Bill Reid totem, another house totem, stopped in at Longhouse Gift Shop for a magnet item, and she gave us a bowl of bing cherries as they were done for the day and closing shop. We headed up to the main highway to catch a ride and a car drove by us on the little road. Stopped and asked us if we wanted a ride. We jumped at the chance to avoid a 10 km walk and hopped in. We introduced ourselves as tourists and told them about our day. The driver said she worked at the park orientation building and handed us her card. It was Mook Wesley. We told her we’d be in Wednesday and she said she’d bring in some halibut for us. She dropped off Judy at the marina and I rode to the main town area which turned out to be only two more blocks. On the way back I ran into Joe and he had arranged a rental car for tomorrow. $55 a day plus 36 cents a kilometer. We invited them to dinner at our boat. Pork chops, salad, asparagus, and rice dish. Marshall brought dessert, a chocolate bar. We pick up the rental car at 8am tomorrow so headed to bed early.
